Harnessing microorganisms for smart microsystems

A research team at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Toyohashi University of Technology has developed a method to construct a biohybrid system that incorporates Vorticella microorganisms. The method allows movable ...

Linear equations system will restore impaired hand motion

Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology have developed a model for predicting hand movement trajectories based on cortical activity: Signals are measured directly from a human brain. The predictions ...

New test bed probes the origin of pulses at LCLS

It all comes down to one tiny spot on a diamond-cut, highly pure copper plate. That's where every X-ray laser pulse at SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source gets its start. That tiny spot must be close to perfect or it can impair ...

Metamaterial flexible sheets could transform optics

(Phys.org) —New ultrathin, planar, lightweight, and broadband polarimetric photonic devices and optics could result from recent research by a team of Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists. The advances would boost security ...

Software accelerates groundwater simulations

Leading global companies like Schlumberger Water Services, Aquaveo LLC, DHI Water & Environment, Environmental Simulations Inc., and HydroGeoLogic Inc. exploit Fraunhofer SCAI's linear solver library SAMG (Algebraic Multigrid ...

Swift progress on NSLS-II booster

The electrons that will generate intense, focused beams of x-rays at NSLS-II are accelerated to their target energy before they enter the large main ring. That crucial job falls on a complex of equipment known as the injector, ...

Explained: Linear and nonlinear systems

Much scientific research across a range of disciplines tries to find linear approximations of nonlinear behaviors. But what does that mean?
